An unworkable combination of strength training and cardio

"Until I did this workout, I thought Kimberly Spreen could do no wrong. My workout routine is based on heavy strength training, spinning, and Pilates. I like fusion workouts, I love Kimberly's cuing and personality, and I like bodyweight exercises, so I thought I'd love "Amplify Your Strength". But my heart sank as soon as I previewed it.
"Amplify Your Strength" zips along at breakneck speed. It's as though Kimberly was trying to fit every bodyweight exercise there is into 55 minutes. Although I am familiar with all the exercises, I felt that the transitions were so fast I didn't really benefit from any of them.
I think the workout was poorly conceived - it's not fast enough to qualify as cardio, and it's too fast to be real strength training."
Fast Fusion-style Workout

"This workout moves very quickly compared to other fusion-style programs. I like that it has a different feel, and I tend to become bored when programs move too slowly. I have enjoyed Kimberly's kickboxing-based workouts, as well. It is a great cardio option on my "barefoot days" (I do this workout barefoot, even though Kimberly and her assistants wear shoes). I would judge this as a light workout for the intermediate-advanced exerciser."
